Sounds like a fun disc that will break into a good turnover for the longer shots, im excited.

Side-by-side with an Icon Patriot, my guess is that the tops are identical and the wing is where the difference comes into play. The Phenom has a nearly straight underside to the wing. Hopefully these pics show what I'm talking about.

I've posted this the in Nemesis thread, but I wanted to put it here too since it came up here.

Sparkle Nemesis is being released to retailers as a fundraiser for 2015 PDGA Amateur World Championships in Kalamazoo Michigan.

Flight #s are 10/6/-4/2

So yeah as the credible source said...understable

Those are some pretty unique numbers. What's the closest comp you think?

From what I hear about the flight and the profile I've seen - it seems to be like a seasoned Orc. I'm not sure there is really anything like it at that speed range. Definitely curious to try it.

Excited about the Phenom, but i probably wont even buy a Nemesis now that the numbers are out.. why do they keep making flippy stuff.

Are you talking about the Nemesis or the Phenom?

I'm not sure what the numbers are on the Phenom, but from what I've gotten in so far my impression is that it's very much like a Champ Sidewinder, but slower speed. Icon is definitely more stable than the Legend run. These power down nicely for a woods tunnel shot that ends left (rhbh). Headwind plays with these, but they still fade back some at the end. If I had to put a number on it, I'd say 7/5/-3/2...hard to say, but ZJ's analysis of it being a side-to-side mover is spot on.

By the numbers, yes. But the TD2s I've thrown weren't quite as understable as the numbers suggested. YMMV
